Anyone know the plan for the Central Thruway at Greenwell Springs?


I can't find a detailed map of the merge/bridge area. Specifically the area just to the upper left of CC




This looks like it has the potential to further screw up the flood of Watsonians pouring through that area

Late Summer early Fall...

They had an article in the advocate today about the Thruway. I think it was in the ask the editor or ask the advocate section.

I pass through the construction zone every day and i have come to the conclusion that they are making it up as they go

i'm curious about the intersection itself. it looks like they're making an extended merge lane that crosses beaver bayou (strange because bridges are so expensive) that isn't adjacent to Greenwell Springs

either way, if this is a prelude to four-laning GS to Magnolia Bridge i am all for it.

I just wish they would open the completed section from Florida to Greenwell Springs Rd.

I think everyone is curious about the merge/intersection... as of now they are building a little tiny 2 lane bridge right next to the existing old bridge... i have no earthly idea what they intend to do with that new 2 lane bridge

if this deters the livingstonites from using GWS though im all for it

Well I know they are putting a light up at the intersection of Frenchtown and the Thruway. That started happening on Friday.

After it is all said and done, they were going back to Frenchtown and redo the bridge on Frenchtown that crosses Beaver Bayou. This was per The Advocate.

they probably want to finish the intersection or you're going to have a lot of cars stuck in the mud

That won't happen until it all opens, but it's not even finished yet. The area in-between Florida and Frenchtown is complete.

the only way to deter livingstonites from using anything is to install a dress code

I honestly hope this opens the door to 4 lane Greenwell to Magnolia. It should have happened 10 years ago, but this is Louisiana.

BTW "construction" begins today on the widening of 16 north of watson up to the st. helena line along with turn lanes at the new high school to alleviate that retarded mess
